Now don't faint I know blogging twice in one week is unheard of here!!
I need to get on with making my Christmas cards so what better way than to use a good sketch to get the inspiration going. It's a while since I participated in the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge but this week's sketch is such a lovely one it would have been rude not to play along.
I did turn the sketch on it's side for my card but I think that's allowed (hope so!)
Now I'm not sure just how festive this card is, I usually use lots of red and green for Christmas cards so this is a bit different for me. I used Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees, this is such a versatile set with endless possibilities. I thought these trees had a Christmas tree kind of shape so opted for them, I sponged some distress ink onto the stamp to give it this softer effect then sponged a background using a piece of torn paper as a mask and various shades of green ink. I was really pleased with how this turned out.
I added some Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel which I heated from underneath to give the snowy effect. I should have used a plainer scallop for my edges as I think this is a bit too fussy with the floral oval die. Some button twine from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop finishes off the card. The sentiment is also from the Teeny Tree set.
A quick reminder that there is a design team call over at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop blog, if you like using ribbons and pretty embellishments then check out the details HERE.
